It has smooth and supple handling and a dry core treatment to repel dirt and water. The last five meters of each end of the Agility are colored red, a safety marker alerting you that you are at the end of your rope.
CAMP USA Titan Climbing Helmet
$41.21 (25% off, was $54.95)
A helmet is one of the most important pieces of gear a climber can own. Whether you’re climbing some chossy and obscure multi-pitch or belaying at the local crag, rocks can always fall from above, and you can always take an awkward fall and bang your melon. The Titan Climbing Helmet has an ABS Injection Molded shell and Spider suspension framework to give you maximum impact protection.
DMM Pivot Belay Device
$27.71 (25% off, was $36.95)
The Pivot is a durable and lightweight tube style belay device that can be used for lead, toprope, and guide mode top-belaying. What sets the Pivot apart from other belay devices, however, is the pivoting hinge that offers extra leverage and a smooth action when lowering your climbing partner off the belay ledge.
Metolius F.S. Mini II Jet Carabiner Set 6-Pack
$29.21 (25% off, was $38.95)
These carabiners from Metolius are some of the lightest on the market, clocking in at just 0.8oz per. Replacing all the bulky old carabiners on your rack with the Mini II Jets will add up to serious weight savings. They are also color coded making cam and harness organization a breeze.
Beal Rope Cleaner
$14.96 (25% off, was $19.95)
If your hands turn black with dirt and gunk and grease after each time you belay, it means it’s time to clean your rope. This Rope Cleaner from Beal is a non-aggressive detergent meant to wash the dirt out of your soft goods without damaging the polyamide rope fibers.
